CLIn the pages of this Pine Knot of 1923 
we have attempted to faithfully depict our 
college life. Ct, Perhaps because of the charm, 
the book is dear to you, gentle readers, but 
because of the labor it represents, it is far

E want to subject President Hilley to the three-fold test of speed, style, 
and endurance. 

He is now thirty-one years of age, and has been College President two years, 
College Dean one year, Director of Vocational Guidance in Atlanta, Georgia, one 
year, College Professor two years, and President of the Wilson Rotary Club one 
year. He is a graduate of Transylvania College and of Oxford University — having 
spent three years in that time-honored institution as a Rhodes scholar from Ken- 
tucky. Few young men have shown greater speed in the attainment of success. 

His style is likewise attractive. When he was made Dean of Atlantic Christian 
College that adolescent was still wearing "C" clothing. After he was President 
one year the State said a "B" suit would fit. But nothing less than an "A' ' gar- 
ment would satisfy the academic style of the new President, and so when the 
graduates leave at the close of the twenty-first session, their caps and gowns will 
be cut and fitted in an educational style-shop of the first order with "Tailor" 
Hilley as the head designer. 

The next test is not so easily applied. We can guess, but that is not testing. 
Personally we believe there is no quality of his make-up more promising. We 
would guess that the first two qualities which have given him such standing in 
the confidence of the Disciples of North Carolina, will be continually enhanced 
by years of efficient service. We would guess, again, that if the brotherhood will 
respond to the demands of an "A" grade College, with President Hilley's sane 
and constructive program, the Church of Christ in the Old North State in a few 
years need not be ashamed to compare her college with any church school in the 
South. A weakening on the part of Ihe brotherhood in this regard is the only 
handicap to the last named quality, and this is indeed an improbable eventuality. 

Never has Atlantic Christian College gone forward with more rapid strides 
than now. Never has she looked fairer to her admirers and fiiends. Never has 
she needed more sorely the continued statesmanlike administration of the present. 

Mr. Hilley, you are the Man of the Hour.

F. F. Grim, A.M. 

Professor of Education. 

A. B., Drake University, 1894; A. M., Beth- 
any College, 1914; graduate student University 
of Chitago, 1900; graduate student Chicago

Christian College, 1920; present position, 1918. 

Mr. Grim, our Professor of Education, is 
loved, admired and esteemed by all the students. 
His cheerful disposition and ready smile win for 
him a place in the hearts of all. lie is not satis- 
fied with the present things, hut continues to 
strive for the higher, as is evidenced by the fact 
that he usually spends his vacations in Univer- 
sity work. He is a faithful worker, and gives 
service to those who need help. 

We wish for him the best things in every way 
that life has to offer. 

"His life was gentle, and the elements so mix'd 
in him, that Nature might stand up and say to all 
the world, 'Tliis was a man.' "

Mrs. Grim, familiarly known to the Dramatic 
Club members as "step-mama," is a real En- 
glish teacher; she keeps the students alert, wait- 
ing to hear what she will say next. One of her 
favorite "stunts" is to read a part of a story in 
class, and leave it for the student to finish before, 
another recitation, thus stimulating interest 
She is no less gifted in teaching Expression. Mrs 
Grim is noted for her ability to entertain, and 
through her excellent leadership, the Dramatic 
Club parties have become famoi s.

Perry Case, A.B., B.D. 

Professor of Religious Education. 

Indianapolis Business College, 1903; College 
of Bible, Lexington, Kv., 1912; A. B., Butler 
College, 1914; B. D., Butler College, 1916; City 
Missionary for Broadway Christian Church,

1915-1916; Professor at Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege, 1916-1923; Columbia University Summer 
School, 1922. 

Mr. Case is beloved by the whole student, 
body, and there are reasons for this love. His 
life is one of good cheer and happiness, and 
wherever he goes he scatters sunshine. In his 
class work, his chapel talks, his leadership of the 
song service; in fact, in everything he does, he 
stimulates interest in the student. He is not 
only with us, but one of us. We shall never for- 
get you, Mr. Case. 

''No long-faeed man — no critic he of pious look 
and mien, 

But gracious, smiling, honest, true and well- 
beloved, I ween!

Professor of Mathematics. 

Graduate of Kinsey Seminary; special student 
of mathematics, Knoxville Normal and Univer- 
sity of Virginia; Instructor of Mathematics, 
A. C. C, U/04-1921; 1922- 

"Miss Fannie," who has been Professor of 
Mathematics at A. C. C. since 1904, is also Dean 
of t he G iris this year. She docs not feel at home at 
any place other than the "math" classroom and 
the halls of A. C. C. Even though she is always 
peeping to see if there is a boy wherever she sees 
a girl, all of us love her. She is a woman of quiet 
dignity, and she always has the interest of the 
girls at heart. ''Miss Fannie" has a wonderful 
way of showing her interest in us, and is a real 
friend to all who know her at A. C. C.

W. T. Mattox, A.B., A.M., B.D. 

Professor of Philosophy. 

1918— A. B., A. C. C. 
1920— A. M., Vanderbilt University. 
1921— B. D., Vanderbilt University. 
1922— Professor of Philosophy, A. C. C. 

Mr. Mattox is one of the latest additions to 
the College Faculty. He is a true product of 
Atlantic Christian College. His favorite words 
are ''think" and "reason;" his slogan is, "Do 
not be afraid to doubt." The College is very 
fortunate in having a man of his caliber. The 
Department of Philosophy has already shown 
great progress under Mr. Mattox. The true, 
genuine influence that he exerts will soon make 
this phase of the work an outstanding course in 

S. Lee Sadler, A.B., M.A. 

Head of Deportment of Social Science. 

Graduate of A. C. C, 1917; graduate student 
of Vanderbilt, 1918.; Principal of A. C. C, High 
School, 1918-1919; Vanderbilt, M. A., 1919- 
1920; present position since 1920. 

Mr. Sadler wins the love of all the students. 
He has a pleasing personality, an open mind, 
and strong convictions. He is a man of vision, 
and has an abiding faith in God. Mr. .Sadler is 
still young, and we feel sure that his best and 
most brilliant days are yet to come. In our 
estimation, someone may fill his space at A. C. C, 
but no one can take his place in our hearts.

of Chemistry and Biology, Atlantic Christian 
College, 1921-1922. Member American Chem 
ical Society; member American Association for 
the Advancement of Science. 

Mr. Williams has proven a most valuable 
member of the faculty of A. C. C. He has been 
successful in building up a substantial science 
department. His science courses are always 
popular with the students, and under his guid- 
ance even girls come to have a scientific interest 
in cutting up frogs and earthworms. Charac- 
teristic of his profession, Mr. Williams is dili- 
gent, persistent and analytical, with college 
spirit which manifests itself in the various 
activities of our college life.

lege, Wilson, N. C. 

We are fortunate in having Miss Beach as 
Professor of Modern Languages in our College. 
She is a thoroughly competent teacher, and tells 
her students repeatedly that they must "mas- 
ter' ' the subject in hand. The industry of her 
students is an index to her teaching.

Hearken to the song of praise, 

Oh, ye who read this book, 
By alumni ever raised 

To penetrate each nook. 

'Tis to thee, oh, A. C. C, 

Our gratitude we sing; 
High and low, in every key, 

Ami for and wide 'twill ring. 

For it tells of other days 

That each one spent with thee. 

'Till we left thy halls, and ways, 
To journey o'er life's sea. 

As the strains of music fall 

Upon the listening ear, 
Simple melodies appall 

With hesitating fear. 

Compositions thus began. 

But as the days went by 
Harmonies much fuller ran 

With graduation nigh. 

Minor phrases found within 

Revealed our trials there. 
Progress was disclosed again 

By swift and stately air. 

When the final chord was reached 
'Twos then we left thy hands. 

Tested, noir, and trieil is each 
In home and foreign la nils. 

In Alma Mater, our composer, 

We left Ihei unperfccled. 
Are we winners now, or losers, 

Received, or rejected' 

Winners, yes, for some hare touched 
The solus of women and men. 

You've exalted life for us 
And made us o'er again. 

Alma Mater, 'tis to thee 

Our homage now we give. 
Alma Mater, 'lis for thee 

Our love forever lives.

Atlantic Christian College 

Brief months ago the Senior Class of Atlantic Christian College dreamed of producing a Pine 
Knot that would surpass its predecessors. The book in your hand is the realization of this 
vision. It is the result of skill, training, grit and energy freely given by the class for the accom- 
plishment of its ideal. Yet the labor would have been unavailing without the loyal sup- 
port of all fellow-students, the alumni of the College and its friends in Wilson and elsewhere. 

Some process like this, it seems, must occur in the development of the College itself as well 
as in this Pine Knot. A dream, the common property of all friends of the College, personnel, 
and support, can use material things in building up Atlantic Christian College to a position of 
service to which maybe few of us now dare to aspire. 

When the State Accrediting Committee visited the College in March, and sent back the mes- 
sage (the first the College ever had of such moment), "Graduates in twenty-three rated A," 
some might have considered the task done, and dreaming useless. But that is far from the 
case, for now, perhaps more than at any time in the history of the College, must we stop 
to look ahead and again consider what kind of College we want. 

Dream-stuff — in Eastern Carolina, at Wilson, a college for men and women, built to care for 
five hundred, with every needed aid to their proper training and development. That plan 
would embrace dormitories, administration building, library, gymnasium, heating plant, in- 
firmary, athletic field — everything that a good college has and should have. Endowment — not 
enough to make the college over-rich and independent of its constituency, but enough to protect 
it when the lean years come, as it must function then as always. Faculty and staff of the same 
high standard we've maintained — larger, of course, and broader in training and experience as 
time goes on. (All this work to be done on a location large enough to permit architectural unity 
of design and a landscape that will dignify the whole.) 

Such a plan may seem to be too ambitious. That is not the ease if the College is to live, and 
if it is our desire to educate our own boys and girls. 

Realization — this depends on wisdom of the leadership of the Board of Trustees and adminis- 
trative officers of the College, and united support both in the way of students and money. It 
seems now as if this were a distant goal. Three years ago it seemed much farther away than 
now. The accomplishment of the present is proof conclusive of the power of united support 
both in men and money. 

We have an immediate goal for the next year in the way of students — an enrollment of 150 in 
the College classes. That will stand as a challenging point to our loyalty, as we move on toward 
the more distant goal. 

It will be the glory of our lives when we can look at this dream realized — our joy to make in 
the walls of this larger A. C. C. a lasting investment. 

What prompted the Class of '23 to make this book? The desire to serve their Alma Mater 
and her cause. There must be in this larger matter of college building the same desire to serve. 
There must be the spirit of Him who said, "Whosoever would be great among you shall be- 
come your servant." Shall we not, students and faculty alike, consecrate ourselves to high 
service in that spirit? H. S. HILLEY.

"Dainty," "sweet," "accomplished," are ad- 
jectives we may apply with fullest veracit}' to 
Sallie. Most often we think of Sallie at the 
piano. Indeed, her soul is full of music, and it 
runs out at her very ringer tips. The popularity 
of her music is attested by the constant pleas to 
her to play "just one more time." She is loved 
not only for her musical talent, but for her own 
sweet self.

occasion to speak well of her when she passes his

During his career he taught two years, and in 
the fall of the present year he returned to A. C. C.

Whenever we think of our twinkling brown- 
eyed Sadie, one of our graduates in Ex- 
pression, we naturally think of the adjective 
"capable." Not only in Expression is she 
gifted, but also in her ability to do many things 
of merit. She is an enthusiastic worker in the 
Alethian Society, and one upon whom we can 
always depend. She is faithful to her duties as 
teacher, as office worker, and as student. She 
is loyal, gentle and sincere. She is calm and 
quiet, yet she possesses a strong determination. 
Whatever she attempts to do she does success- 
fully. We know that whatever her vocation 
may be, hers will be a useful life. 

" The world means something to the capable."

In Ray we have a studious and diligent worker. 
Miss Smith never had a more faithful piano 
student in College. When all others forsake the 
practice rooms, Ray plays on. At musical re- 
citals, when she sits at the piano, we feel sure that 
the selection will be beautifully rendered. She 
plays as serenely as St. Cecilia in days of old. 
As assistant instructor in piano, Ray is already 
showing herself to be a talented music teacher.

cate fine qualities."

''All work and little play" seems to be

''Education' ' notes. She is a very conscientioiss 
worker in every task. Although her academic 
work is heavy, she finds time to take part in the 
various school activities. She is an active mem- 
ber of the Dramatic Club; she is a faithful Y. W.

her natural ability she has accomplished much 
during her four years of College career. Agnes 
has won many friends by her friendly disposition.

Paulcame to A. C. C. three years ago. Through 
his diligent and determined efforts, he finished 
his college work in three years. Three things 
are essential for success in college life. First 
loyalty; second, loyalty, and third, oyalty. 
In Paul we find the three. As a scholar, he is 
loyal to his books: as a student, he is loyal 
to the institution, and as a Christian, he is loyal 
to his Christ. Paul is an earnest and conscien- 
tious student. He never fails, regardless of how 
difficult and strenuous the task. Service to 
mankind, either as a minister or as a foreign 
missionary, is Paul's ambition and desire. His 
ability to accomplish either is without question

To the most winsome of our class, to Charlie 
Grey we turn. She has undeniably distin- 
guished herself in many Dramatic Club plays 
as a talented actress. \Yith equal success she 
portrays the young, pretty heroine, the crabbed 
old maid, the Irish cook, or the unsophisticated 
country girl. In the programs of the literary 
society, as well as at social functions, we enjoy 
her spicy monologues.

It is no exaggeration to say that Roger is more 
generally liked than any other boy. In public 
disputes he thinks much and says little. Whether 
he agrees or disagrees, the amount of his utter- 
ance is about the same. But otherwise Roger is 
a great talker. He is entertaining, original and 
witty. He is at his best in small groups. He 
appreciates life as a whole, but automobiles, 
baseball, shows and ''The Saturday Evening 
Post" have a peculiar charm for him. 

In college activities he has taken an active or 
passive interest. Because of his jovial manner, 
he receives a nomination for nearly every office 
in all organizations. But, when considered 
seriously, he serves in a financial capacity be- 
cause of his well-known ability to keep and 
spend a dollar intelligently.

Bright portals wide their doors are flinging; 

The many paths entice along.

All credit due to thee, A. C!

In later days, of ivorld renown; 
While others, dreaming not of fame, 
Will shine unknown to those around. 
But one and all will turn to thee, 
Bring honor to our A. C. C .!

Press on! 'Tis ours to choose the way;

This history is a truthful tale 
Of Senior folks — both maid and male. 
I tell you no mistakes you'll find — 
Pure fact and truth are here combined. 
When James and Bill were green as grass 
They came and formed the Freshman class. 
Now, Soph'more days brought large increase 
Of wonders that will never cease. 
Old Roger, with his crippled leg, 
And Zeb, who hobbled on a peg. 
And poor Miss Sadie — green was she — 
And Agnes who sang off the key. 
And Beth, who weighed 200 plus — 
And always made an awful fuss. 
They came to join this gorgeous class, 
To be remembered to the last. 
When Junior days were come around, 
Came Sallie, tall, and freckled brown; 
And Lossie, snaggled-toothed a bit — 
And Paul, who dyed his hair with Rit. 
Now such a crowd that finally came, 
Who kept our class from being tame! 
There's Ray, poor thing, so pale and thin, 
There's Nelle, with neither kith nor kin. 
And Lloyd was bald and had the gout, 
And Omer had a permanent pout. 
And squeaky-voiced Miss Charlie Grey! 
A handsome man ne'er came her way. 
Now, some object to .this truthful (?) tale; 
There's some who came to loudly wail, 
And say there's not a word correct, 
That I their future hopes have wrecked. 
Now just to show I'm fair and square, 
I'll tell the truth in every ear: 
We're all so pretty and so sweet 
Our charms I dare not here repeat.

entor Claste ^ropfjecp 

I WAS a settin' in the library a-readin', when I heard someone a-knockin' at the 
door. Little did I dream when I laid that book on the table — with a hairpin 
in it for a book-mark — that I was goin' to the door to meet someone I used 
to go to school with, but whom I hadn't seen now for years. 

Zeb never would tell us jes' what he was goin' to do after fmishin' his college 
course, but he took so much education under Mr. Grim that we thought he'd 
turn out to be a teacher. Leastways some of us did. But still, after all that 
debatin' Zeb did, I was not surprised when he told me that afternoon that he was 
a lawyer, and that he had come down in interest of that railroad accident that 
occurred near town a few days before. 

You know our conversation was naturally about our classmates, an' the things 
he told me surprised me 'bout as much as the things I told him surprised him. 
Zeb bein' a lawyer an' a well-read man, an' gettin' 'bout a good bit, he'd kept up 
with 'em better'n I had. So I delighted in havin' him tell me 'bout 'em. 

He started off some of his funny stories 'bout Lloyd — wipin' his eyes with a 
sheet one night in the boys' dormitory, I believe 'twas, when some other boy had 
got a note from his girl — jest like Lloyd. I asked him where Lloyd was, an' what 
he was engaged in, an' he told me he was a noted statistician, an' his head- 
quarters were in New York. He visited him at his office a few days before. I 
asked him where Lloyd got that notion, an' he said, "Why, don't you remember 
the time he an' I took the census in Wilson? That was the beginnin' of it." 

Of course I asked 'bout Lossie next, an' he said, "Oh ! how funny things do turn 
out! While Lloyd compiles statistics in New York, Lossie — why, what do you 
s'pose Lossie is doin,' anyhow? You know what a good language student she 
was, an' how Miss Beach praised her in Spanish class? Well, I s'pose she couldn't 
resist the temptation to use that Spanish — so she's sellin' typewriter ribbons an' 
carbon paper in South America." 

I wondered if James and Bill were still together, since they seemed so inseparable 
in school days, an' Zeb said he guessed not, as James was President of a college 
way out West. He went on to tell me 'bout the son of one of his clientele goin' 
to college there, an' 'bout him writin' how everybody loved "President Man- 
ning." 'Course that was what we expected of "Jimmy," as he was preparin' 
for educational work, but Bill surprised us. When he went to Vanderbilt he had 
decided to become a preacher, an' he was pastor of a big church in Tennessee at

that time. They never let him get out o' that State before they put him to work. 
I was glad I could contribute something to the conversation by tellin' him where 
Charlie Grey was, an' 'bout the good play I had been to in the city a few nights 
before, an' that Charlie Grey was the heroine. It was one of Shakespeare's plays, 
too; one I'd been dyin' to see ever since we studied it under Mrs. Grim. Zeb 
was sorry he hadn't seen it, but I told him he might yet. 

I'tl seen Nelle that day I went to the city, too. I wanted some salted peanuts 
when I was walkin' by the shop where I smelled 'em, an' when I stepped in to 
buy some, Nelle sold 'em to me. She said she was makin' good money there, an' 
I told her I bet she was — as much practice as she got a-sellin' peanuts for the 
Y. W. store at A. C. C. 

He asked me why I didn't ask Nelle 'bout Sallie that day, an' I gladly told him 
I did. Of course they had corresponded ever since school days, an' when Sallie 
wrote Nelle that her Concert Company would be in the city that season, Nelle 
would have spent all her "peanut money," if necessary, to hear her play once 

Zeb had been to a Chatauqua recently, where he'd met another of our class- 
mates, Agnes, in a work we'd never a-guessed her (Join', but we weren't shocked 
to hear of it, for she was well fitted for a Junior Chautauqua superintendent, I 
knew, after studyin' so much "Psychology of Childhood" an' the likes, an' then 
teachin' a year or so to put all that theory into practice. We did wonder, though, 
how she could stay 'way from Ayden to do all that. 

"Ray lived near Ayden, too, didn't she?" he asked. 

"Little nearer Grifton," I told him, "but she's a long, long way from Grifton 
now. Ray's career since she left A. C. C. hasn't been pleasin' to her music teacher, 
I'm sure, but no one else seems to feel that way 'bout it; an' Miss Smith, even, has 
to admit that she's a success. She's disappointed that Ray didn't keep up her 
music, but after practicin' five hours a day for two years to get up them recitals 
before graduatin,' Ray had a curvature of the spine, so she accepted the position 
offered her as Dean of Women in a co-ed school down in Florida. She's near 
'nough to Jacksonville that she can go over to all the operas an' musical comedies, 
an' I know she's happy, for she tells me so in all her letters." 

"It's really too bad 'bout Paul," Zeb added. 'Course I was curious to know 
what 'bout him. "Why, he ain't even a-preachin', after all his Bible an' religious 
education, an' theology of the great poets, an' the like." 

"Lawsee! What's he doin'?" I asked, for I couldn't think of him in any other 
line of business than the preachin' of the gospel, he bein' so consecrated. When

Zeb said he was sellin' religious books down in Georgia I could see a little connec- 
tion 'twixt that an' his college work, an' I remembered how perseverin' he was, 
too; 'specially when we were workin' on the Annual in our Senior year, so I knew 
he'd get along all right if he decided to undertake sellin' books. 

"An' Beth's still livin' in cottages — not in the mountains all the time, but on 
the seashore as well. She's makin' an intensive study of nature, an' writin' 
poems an' short stories on love an' nature for the Literary Digest every week." 

"Literary Digest!" exclaimed Zeb. I said, "Yes, the Literary Digest. Why?" 
Then he pulled a copy out of his pocket an' showed me some of the cartoons on 
the political questions of the day. The remarkable part was the name in the 
corner — J. R. Spier. Roger had turned out to be the foremost cartoonist of 
the day. Sketchin' cartoons for that paper, we agreed, meant real success. 

I proceeded to relate a trip I had made to Belhaven, N. C, some days before, 
an' to tell 'bout seein' Omer at his work. He'd not missed his callin', for he was 
coachin' basketball, baseball an' football in the Belhaven High School nine months 
to the year, an' teachin' rowin' an' swimmin' on that beautiful river there in the 

When Zeb was nearly ready to leave, he said he'd love to know what I was 
doin' in that little village, an' I told him we had a dandy school in the village, an' 
I had a nice class in Expression over there in the mornings. I often did type- 
writin' for the business men Ihere in the odd hours, that helped me to keep in 
practice. I bought me a machine on the installment plan some time ago, an' it 
had certainly paid for itself. He suggested that I write letters to all our class- 
mates, since we'd located 'em all, urgin' that everyone of us be present at the 
comin' commencement in May, to get a good look at the new dormitories, library, 
laboratory, gymnasium an' heatin' plant, an' I promised I'd do it. So he hurried 
on to meet his appointment.

letting books interfere with his education, so 
plays a part in most of the college activities. In

Archie Reel 

Arapahoe, N. C. 

"One Reel Archie," or "Little Fellow" if you 
prefer, is one of the most popular students on 
the campus, especially among the members of 
the fair sex. He comes from Arapahoe, and to 
show his loyalty to his home town he appeared 
on the campus the first year wearing a large 
badge with the inscription, "Watch Arapahoe 
Crow." This same spirit of loyalty he shows 
today to his college. He takes part in all the 
athletic events; enjoys its social functions, and 
is an all-round "good fellow." As a brilliant 
student he has won the commendation of all the 
professors. If he continues to pursue his work 
with his present energy his diploma will read 

"Cum Summa Lamia."

John W. Humphreys 

Wilson, N. C. 

After spending two years in Transylvania 
College, Mr. Hmuphreys came to our Junior 

In dealing with Mr. Humphreys we are 
handling a piece of mechanism that we know- 
very little about. It can well be said that his 
ideas (and he has many of them) are wrapped up 
with information for us.

Della Winstead 

Whitakers, N. C. 

Della, the winner of the Faculty Loving Cup 
last year, is a girl with a vigorous and versatile 
mind. She is a very cheerful worker in the 
Hesperian Society, a loyal Y. W. C. A. girl, and a 
fine student in Music, as well as in her literary 
work. Although Della seems quiet and un- 
assuming, seeming is not is, for she is just as 
jolly as the next one when she is with a crowd of 
girls, and no one can assume more with less 
effort than Delia.

Lewis Whitehead 
Dover, N. C. 

One, Lewis H. Whitehead, hails from a hamlet 
of Craven county by the name of Dover. Lewis, 
because of his pleasing personality, is liked by all 
the students, and his room is always open to 
his friends, for he is ready to entertain, yet does 
not neglect his work. 

Lewis' delight lies in forming a fire company 
of the Freshmen, never failing to take them out 
when the fire-alarm sounds. Thus he is known 
by many as ''Big Chief,'' which fits him well. 

"An able, strong, laborious man is he."

Junior $oem 

We've trod the path for three long years 
With joy and gladness, often tears, 
When Freshmen, they all called us green, 
When Sophs, we walked with haughty mien. 
When Juniors glad, ice came to be, 
We honor brought to A. C. C. 

Oh, Juniors! Juniors! far off goal, 
To reach it, toil with heart and soul. 
Uphold our motto to "Be Square!" 
We lore our colors bright and fair, 
Come, Juniors all, and join with me, 
Be loyal, true, to A. C. C. 




Junior insftorp 


IN September, of the fall of 1920, there came to A. C. C. a group of boys and 
girls who were to matriculate as Freshmen. And not to deceive our name, 
we were real Freshmen, who had come with the sole desire of building for our- 
selves a place in life. 

There wore many hardships and discouragements to be met with, but in the 
face of these we continued to strive. We were proud of our class, for, at that 
time, it was the largest Freshman Class in the history of A. C. C. Our greatest 
desire at that particular time, however, was to become a "Sophomore" for, how 
we envied them! How we did want to reach the place where we could not be 
dominated by them. Surely, they forgot they had once been Freshmen. How- 
ever, we continued to work and go forward. 

Alas! our Sophomore year was reached; how we looked back on the Freshmen 
then, and thought of the days that were no more for us. But ah! there was still 
something before us. There were many things for us to do, for we were Sopho- 
mores. If we were to live up to our motto "B- 2 ", certainly there was more to it 
than mere book learning. Responsibilities were placed upon us which meant 
work and courage. 

We were proud of our Sophomore class, for many of the school honors were car- 
ried off by them. Some of the best athletes in school were found in our class. The 
Faculty Loving Cup was won by one of our members. Surely we were to mean 
something to our college and to ourselves. 

But before we realized it our Sophomore year had passed, and we were real 
Juniors. What else could there be in life, for we were to be Seniors. Our Junior 
class is one of which A. C. C. should be proud. It is one of the largest in the col- 
lege's history, and contains some of its most talented and capable students. We, 
as Juniors, have begun to realize that there is something in life really worth striv- 
ing for. The goal of our college work is just before us, and we believe "we shall 
reap if we faint not.' ' Our Senior year is near us, and it is only a short time 
until we leave the halls of this institution to take up our life work. Thus we 
continue to press on for the reward that awaits us at the end. 

"Juniors, the task rests with you; 
Are you ready to strive, dare and do?"

Hail, Sophomores of '23! 
A gallant band as e'er there be! 
On noble ends our minds are bent, 
On work and task — all Heaven sent. 

We've caught the vision — service true, 
Our hearts are brave and joyful, too, 
■And now the splendor of the goal — 
We seek with high uplifted soul. 

And Freshies, like the meadow green, 
As fresh and pure as mountain stream, 
E'en now thy strength, afore unknown, 
Forecasts a class of great renown. 

And Juniors, with great thoughts untold, 
With hearts as pure as purest gold, 
Will shoiv the riclmess of their soul 
Till known of men from pole to pole. 

And Seniors, you with purpose clear, 
Thy parting brings both sigh and tear. 
We love you all and wish success 
May croivn each life ivith happiness. 

And now abideth four in one, 
A unity till tasks are done, 
We stand together, each for all, 
And all for each, in our world's call.

opfjomore Clasisi ^tsftorp 


It is with pride that we recall the day, more than a year ago, when we, now the members of 
the Sophomore Class, entered upon our college career. This day saw us, an aggregation of 
green, awkward girls and boys, file into the building to enter our names as Freshmen upon the 
college roll-book of Atlantic Christian College, there, day after day for four long weary years, 
to undergo discipline that we might gain ''Wisdom and Understanding." For the first two or 
three months it was a continuous warfare; ambition with a determination to conquer, waging 
war against the ever-constant invasion of the thoughts of home. Many times our eyes were 
filled with tears, and the criticising smiles of our forerunners, the Sophomores, added still more 
pain to our aching hearts. After a hard struggle, success crowned our efforts; and, as September 
the sixth watched with pitying glances our entrance, so May, the twenty-third, with smiles, 
watched us leave the field of battle, conquerors. And ''as to the victors belong the spoils," so 
to us this year belonged the name we bore — the honored name — Sophomore. 

We regarded it a privilege to surrender our places as Freshmen to those who may be following 
us, and wish them a good and glorious victory, which may supersede ours. We now turn our 
faces once more towards the goal with stronger hearts and confront the new problems of our 
second year's work. 

Of the members of this class it can well be said they have aspirations and ideals that link 
their thoughts to the stars, and have ambitions as great as mortal beings can well possess. 

We flatter ourselves that the prospects of this class are brighter than these of any former 
class in the history of this institution. As to its members, nature has been generous, almost to 
the degree of extravagance. The most accomplished voice students and some talented in music 
as well as dramatics, are to be found among the members of this Class. 

Then, again, when the Class is measured by an Athletic standard it is here, asin music and other 
fine arts, that it is not found wanting. The Sophomore Class will be well represented in the 
Ball Teams, some of the best players being, Ross, Bowen, and Gallop, who are members of this 
unique Class. 

Of the two Literary Societies, the Sorority, and various clubs, there are representatives in this 
exceptional Class. Then, too, poets and orators are beginning to take their places among 
these noble men and women. 

For lack of space we must refrain from mentioning other possibilities appearing here and 
yonder upon our horizon. 

But today we feel we have a new duty to perform. This duty, or mission, rs we rray call it, 
is not to further our own selfish interests,, but to help mankind. Realizing, as we do, that neither 
wealth obtained nor position held can lift our country into greatness, there devolves upon us 
the grave responsibility of awakening the world's thoughts to the realization that the tiue hore 
of the world lies deep in Christian education. 

As a class of Sophomores our days are far spent. We shall soon have to lay down our Sopho- 
more tasks and take up the heavier burdens and bear them on to the heights yet unsealed. Yes- 
terday we stood homesick and green at the half open door of the Freshman year; today we 
stand in the threshold of the Junior's larger realm. Before us spread out in panoramic sweeps 
are fields untrodden, depths yet unfathomed, heights yet unsealed. Gathering inspiration from 
the new fields of action still lying before us, we lift high the royal banner, and with the motto: 
''B$; B^i ; never B 6 "; go forward from glory to glory. Though one by one we may drift far 
out upon the restless ocean of life, still may we remember with pride this band of heroes and 

fl7io toiled and bore 

In the days of yore, 

When ice in number, 'bout a score, 

Each one a faithful Sophomore. 

Elizabeth Ethekidge, Historian.

FRESHIES they call us, so verdant and green, 
On campus, in classroom, we're sure to be seen. 

RULES are as pie-crust, both broken with care, 
Like water when drowning we get niore'n our share. 

EATING and drinking like merry King Cole, 
No danger of gout — we toss not nor roll. 

SNOOZING in corners, our shrewd eye's a-peepin', 
Watching for teachers who come in a-creepin'. 

HOPING for half-best, tho' sure of the worst, 
If anything happens we're always caught first. 

MURMURING, complaining, we go on our way, 
But we're hoping and wishing for some brighter day. 

ALTHOUGH 'twill be ages, it's here we will be, 

If you want to see glad ones, why, then such are we. 

NEVER forgetting the fun we have had, 

Our parting from school will be tearful and sad.

Dearest Daddy: 

Please forgive your own daughter for not writing you about the history of her 
class, but she has been so busy — the same old excuse, I know. I will tell you in a 
general way our history, for time and space and humanity will not allow our record 
to be told in detail. 

They say little "Freshies" don't count, but the "They" must be foolish if they 
consider the Freshman Class of '23 not a main factor in this college. When I tell 
you that we have nearly 50% of the college students in our class, and we are all 
making great plans for the future, then you will agree with us that we are not brag- 
gards, but are just giving praise to whom it is clue. 

On our arrival here last September we first had to matriculate, the face value 
of which equaled $. We'll admit that we were "green" about .such words, but 
I'll say we had the courage to find out. Courage is a virtue, isn't it, Dad? 

Getting settled made me think of a Chinese wedding. Surprises — welcomed or 
regretted — await us at every rise of the veil. Our wives and homes were selected 
for us; and then we were to bear the consequences. Banquets and socials were 
planned for us — I am sure it was in honor of the Freshman Class — then we were 
cordially invited. I can't remember the different courses served at the festivals, 
but the friends made and the thrills received will be eternal with us. We made a 
few social blunders, but they were covered with smiles because of our importance. 

Then the old students became jealous of our glory, and began to play jokes on 
us, forcing us to do everything hateful. They said they were initiating us — but 
they couldn't fool us; they were only jealous. Still we have forgotten it, for they 
they have been helpful friends ever since. 

Of course, Dad, we were having classes through it all. We have the most know- 
ing professors to be found. Honest, they can look at you and through you at 
one glance. If you could see us studying, we would remind you of boll weevils 
literally eating acres of cotton — digging to the heart of things with all our might. 
We are now preparing for the time when we can go from these memory-filled halls 
equipped, with the plans in our hearts and the diplomas in our hands, to follow 
the U. P. trail to our goal — the development of character. 

Affectionately your

"^WvUSIC is the universal language of man. It belongs to the soul." 

"If Just so far as one can use this magic key to unlock the heartof the world, 
to that extent does he render a service unto others. The avenues to 
knowledge are always open; sometimes they are broad and easy of access, at 
other times apparently hidden. Often one sees nothing but steep paths, bristling 
with difficulties, and rough by-ways, encumbered with hardships. He must 
determine the direction and the goal. For the student overcomes one obstacle, 
only to find himself confronted with another. Sometimes it appears as if there 
were no other way, either forward or backward; but in this situation the true 
student pushes on, having faith in himself, faith in hard work, and faith in the 
world about him. Never must he picture the musical career as a hope beginning 
big and suddenly coming to an end, like a diminuendo mark; but, contrariwise, 
like the crescendo mark, and growing more and more abundant. He has faith, 
because others have run the same scale, and that he, too, may acquire skill to play 
the score. The world denies the student nothing he can get by faithful effort. 

When the faithful student is conscious of his progress, he can then return to his 
task, and with undimmed eye see the rugged steps up which he must climb. He 
has courage and all the determination to brace himself for still greater effort; and, 
after serious toil, he at last reaches the summit. 

By ways of retrospection, he sees the road by which he has climbed with so 
much constancy and perseverance. It now looks easy; the difficulties which 
seemed insurmountable are lost in the grandeur of the task accomplished. 

The point which he has reached is only a little way up the mountain, but it has 
shown him that which fills him with determination to keep on. He sees, too, that 
life is not long enough to learn all there is to know about music, and that "gradua- 
tion' ' is not the end of the climb, but the first station at which the "success train" 
stops. He has only reached the point where real intelligent enjoyment of the art 
and his work can be indulged in; or, to change the figure, it is the great organ 
stop, which closes a particular register of life. 

Talent, Industry, Success! Add the first to the second, and the student always 
gets the third. 

"Who can tell how hard it is to climb the steep, where Fame's proud temple 
shines afar." Adams, 
Music Editor of Pine Knot.

•^\ ELIGION is the predominating and outstanding activity of the College. It 

\^\ is a nucleus around which all other organizations cluster. In fact, it is the 
*^ very essence of our school life. The religious spirit of our boys and girls is 
shown in various and numerous ways. That spirit of service and worship is 
clearly manifested by the participation of the students in the religious organiza- 
tions, namely the Y. W. C. A. vesper and prayer meeting services, the Fellowship 
Club, the Christian Endeavor and the Student Volunteer Band. In these or- 
ganizations we have -a complete and efficient religious environment. We are 
quite fortunate in having a department of Religious Education, a definite and 
worthy department, with an able man at its head. This unique department 
stands out like a summit above all the others. When once we see the necessity 
and the importance of training in religious education, our greatest task will be 
accomplished, in that it is necessary to our progress and growth. 

We have heard that there are not, and have not been for some time, enough 
ministerial students in our colleges to supply the normal decrease in the ministry, 
due to death and other things that deplete the ministry. We also hear of the need 
for trained leadership. It is the purpose and the desire of this institution to meet 
these demands; to administer unto these needs; to prepare leaders with vision, 
knowledge and character. 

We have in the Fellowship Club one of the leading religious organizations of the 
school. The training and the inspiration the ministerial students receive from 
this organization is untold. This Club includes the faculty, i. e., those who are 
preaching, the ministerial students, and those preparing for religious and mission- 
ary work. This Club meets with the Faculty every Tuesday night. Various 
problems are discussed and solved in these meetings. Each member gives the 
Club, as a whole, his experience of the preceding Sunday. In this way they are 
able to tell what growth and progress they are. making in the State. The College, 
at present, has students and professors preaching from Durham in the West, to 
Elizabeth City on the East. Problems for solution present themselves regularly 
to the new and inexperienced. The Fellowship Club is used as a means for those 
who seek advice in the realm in which they are not familiar, a place to give and 

In the weekly prayer meeting we have one of the most successful organizations 
in school. The, boys cast aside their studies to spend thirty minutes in prayer and 
thanksgiving. They receive and give many helpful suggestions in these meetings. 
They are at liberty to make short talks on any religious topic. 

Probably one of the most interesting, as well as one of the most valuable re- 
ligious organizations, is the Young Women's Christian Association. This work is 
supervised and conducted by a Cabinet composed of the older and more experi- 
enced students. Each member is called upon to lead meetings, and to prepare a 
talk on some interesting topic beneficial and helpful to the welfare of the girls. 

William Manning, 
Lloyd Brinson.

'V^/HE Athletic Association is composed of all students and members of the 
V^ faculty who pay- the annual athletic fee. This association elects the man- 
agers of the various athletic teams, and is responsible for the raising of the 
funds necessary for the expenses of the teams. 

Meetings are held on the fifteenth of each month, at which business is transacted 
and the reports of the treasurer and managers submitted. 

The Athletic Association co-operates with the Faculty Athletic Committee in 
the control of all athletic matters. 

The present method of financing our athletic teams by the proceeds of enter- 
tainments, socials, special programs, parties, etc., is very uncertain and far from 
satisfactory. Therefore, it is earnestly hoped that the Board of Trustees of the 
College will grant the request of our student body and require an athletic fee of 
each student when he matriculates. 

Only in this way will it be possible for A. C. C. to take her rightful place in the 
collegiate athletic world. . 

The officers of the Athletic Association are: 

President James Manning, '23. 

Vice-President Park Nunn, '26. 

Secretary Lossie Tomlinson, '23. 

Treasurer Louis Omer, '23.

Jfoottmll Reason of 1922 


aONSIDERING the greatly curtailed schedule, the football season of 1922 
wan a success. The team went up against opponents of high caliber, and 
played with an admirable fighting spirit against overwhelming odds. The 
first game of the season was played with Wake Forest College at Wake Forest. 
After a scrappy session our boys were defeated 3-1-0. Our next opponents were 
the Racford All-Stars. This game was played October (3th, on the home field, 
score 6-6, tie. On October 28th the Wake Forest Reserves and A. 0. C. fur- 
nished a special attraction for three thousand or more spectators at the Fair 
Grounds in Wilson. The game was hard fought from start to finish. A. C. C. 
outplayed Wake Forest during the greater part of the game, but a break early in 
the contest gave victory to Wake Forest by the narrow margin of one touchdown 
and a goal, score 7-0. 

On November 18th the team journeyed to Raleigh to play the State College 
Freshmen. Our boys held their opponents on even terms, and made first downs 
during the first ten minutes of play. At this point Omer was forced to leave the 
contest on account of injuries. This seemed to affect the spirit and play of our 
team, and thereafter the big Freshmen team had things their own way, romping 
away with the long end of an 85-0 score. We were beaten, but fought gamely 
throughout. The score is no disgrace when we remember that the State Fresh- 
men several times held the Varsity to one or two touchdowns. 

Park Nunn, '26, was the manager of football in 1922, and George Conekin, 
Captain. "Shorty" Brunson, "21, has been elected as manager for the 1923 
season, with Alfred Flanagan, '25, as Assistant Manager. 

Coaches Omer and Grant selected their team from the following squad: Ends, 
"Bill" Manning, Perkins and Nadal; Tackles, Privette, Gallop, Whitehead and 
Omer; Guards, James Manning, Bowen, Whitley, Ross; Center, Banks; Quar- 
terbacks. Reel, Grant; Half-backs, Conekin, Lucas, Davis, MeLawhorn; Full- 
hack, Tomlinson.

/■y - 'HE team this year made a splendid record. They won all but two of the 
\_J games played on the home floor, and made a good showing on the road. 
They played good basketball throughout, and scored 271 points to their 
opponents' 286. An attractive schedule, and Coach Omer, in spite of practice 
conditions, which were far from satisfactory, developed a team of which we are 
justly proud. Following is the basketball squad: Forwards, Finch and Lucas;

r y - 'HE High School Department of Atlantic Christian College was organized in 
\ ±_J answer to a two-fold demand. It has supplemented the secondary educa- 
tional system of North Carolina, especially for the lower Eastern counties, 
from which most of the students have come; and it has served also as a feeder to 
the college. That this function has been justified is made evident, by the number 
and the grade of students who have gone from this school. 

The present function of this department may be thought of as merely transi- 
tional. The secondary school system of the State has been greatly strengthened 
within the last few years; so that young men and young women who are ambitious 
to make a contribution in some definite religious service have the opportunity to 
secure their high school training more economically in their home community. 
With this in mind, the first and second years of the high school were dropped in 
the fall of 1922. 

This more adequate secondary system of the State, and the demands of the Col- 
lege for all available equipment, together with the pressure of a higher standard 
for distinct organization and administration of high school and college, make it 
necessary to offer only the senior courses next year and, in the very near future, 
to offer no secondary work at all. 

If there are students who feel that the demise of this organization will be for 
them a loss of that which is precious, we would make this one recommendation: 
that they immortalize their traditions, memories and ideals by transferring them 
into a vital college life at A. C. C. — a life girded with stronger traditions, vastly 
enriched in memories, and dominated by infinitely higher idealism. 

Mabel C. Case.

*«^ERE we are, Seniors in High School at last. We did not realize that the 

I 1 glorious year of 1923 would hold such wonderful honors and surprises. 

Let us go back to see how the start was made four years ago. In 1919 the 

freshman class entered the portals of A. C. High School, but unfortunately no 

member of that class is with us now. 

Our Sophomore year is represented in a more personal way by two of our mem- 
bers, Effie Pridgeon, who came from Elm City with a splendid record in Athletics, 
and Ruby Cannon, from Ayden, who has won distinction in the "Geometric line.' ' 

The next, our Junior year, brought two more members, Mary Alice Smith, 
Ayden, the girl with -the winning smile, and Richard Rouse, the" Prince Charm- 
ing," who hails from LaGrange. These have added much romance to our school 
experience, and have provided a fund of conversational topics for us in mam- 
years to come. 

How happy we were to come back to school last September, for it was to be 
our Senior year. We were very happily surprised to have three students join our 
class. They were Blanche Allen, who has proved to be the most popular girl in 
school; Elsie Winstead, of Macclesfield, the modest little miss with long, dark 
curls, and William Finch, commonly known as "Bill," the tall, pleasant yout 
with a jolly, spasmodic laugh. 

Our officers were chosen because of their rare abilities. Mary Alice, who always 
manifests a sweet temper and good nature, was chosen president, and she has 
very successfully filled this position. Blanche, because of her ability to say sweet 
nothings, was chosen secretary. Ruby, why, by her mathematical skill, has been 
able to extract money from an empty pocket, was elected treasurer. "Bill," 
having mastered the art of astrology, was made class prophet; Elsie, because she 
is able to made good grades in English, was elected poet, and Effie, through her 
unusual knowledge of property values and legal terms, claimed the sole right to 
compose the last will and testament. 

When we endeavored to find a motto for our class none seemed quite good 
enough. We discussed, pro and con, the mottoes suggested, but not until our 
patience was almost exhausted did we find a fitting one. All the time we were 
quite conscious of our importance and, therefore, felt that anything less than the 
very best was not good enough for us. "I can" carries so much weight with it. 
and spurs us on to such ideal endeavor, that we are confident that we have chosen 
the worthiest motto, and that we shall live up to its possibilities throughout our 

Now, this is the history of no mean class, as the coming years will prove to you. 
Watch us write more valiant deeds and noble accomplishments on the history of 
the future as our motto leads us onward and upward.

0//, to fre a 607// 
'Stead of a horrid girl; 
Oh, to be a boy 
With no hair to curl! 

Oh, to be a boy! 
Valiant, true and strong; 
Oh, to be a boy 
To push the world along! 

If I were a boy 

An engineer I'd be; 

Or perhaps a sailor 

And sail the deep blue sea. 

Some wild life that's happy, 
Some wild life that's free; 
That's the kind of life I like 
The kind of life for me. 

But since I'm just a girl 
I must take much pride, 
Perhaps if not a boy 
I can be one's bride.

Dear Ma and Pa: — 

Your little boy is no longer a Freeman, but a Sitterson of this here A. C. C, 
Browning on these Greene Banks of learning. Well those Sophs ran us out, with 
two Spiers, the very first night, and made us Ware Brown. They sent us up on 
High Hill, at a terrible Gallop over the Heath where the sweet Williams grow, 
and Crossfields to the Beech, where Harrison Stubbs his toe, and Johnson Carrolls 
as the bell Peeles. Well, they sent us over the Dail after a Lamb, Fox, and any 
stray Batts we could find behind the Barnes. We had to go up a Hilley place to 
the Barnhill, to an old lady's house. We told her we wanted her son's Lamb. 
She said, "Wat-son?" We said, "John-son." She said, we couldn't Rob-er-son 
in this Case; if we did she'd raise a "Hulla Ballou." Anyhow, we caught the 
Lamb Reel quick, Sadler'd her, then the Sophs made us Skinn-er. I felt like a 
Grim Bishop at High mass. The Sophs ate Moore than they could hold, and 
they wouldn't give us Nunn. When they heard Lu-cas, they said we'd Dew very 
well with a dry Cobb. 

Hoping you're the same,
